Myself, Markymark and Montstar had a last minute decision to get up early and get around some of Wiltshire’s underground sites, that so far, we'd somehow managed not to see :banghead

We started at Westwood, which threw up the unexpected surprise of being able to see behind the normally locked Re-Store (FKA: Wansdyke) doors!
We didn't stay long, because obviously they were open due to someone working inside! They did have a Burlington-esque electric cart though :D
We stayed just long enough to grab some full-auto-stylie (read: "shit") pics, then made a runner, being chased by the sound of the cart following our footsteps!

Next on the list was a whistle stop tour of Browns Folly, before moving on to Farleigh Down, and rounding off the epic day with Monks Park.

Onto the pics;

Now the interesting shit!

Those in the know will realise that these gates are always locked, we lucked in, and they were open! Someone was making a shit load of noise, so we proceed in to check it out!

We didn't stay long, or see much! In one of the pics below, you can see the safe doors, beyond which I guess they get around by electric cart?

That was enough excitement for one morning! So we exited, grabbed a sandwich, and carried on into the afternoon to Browns

And then stopping at Farleigh Down Tunnel (My calves are still rock hard from the walk to the top!)

After Farleigh, we made one final stop at Monks Park, and then drove home, contented and knackered!!
